And here's one for the foodies out there: 

Coming on the heels of Iron Chef Geoffrey Zakarian and celebrity Chef David Burke’s visit to Australia, Denihan Hospitality Group is unveiling a “Dine & Dish” experience at two of the city's finest hotels - The Benjamin and the very stylish The James hotels -  that gives Australian travellers an opportunity to get a New York City experience like no other.

The highlight of the getaway is a personal dining experience with the executive chefs at the respective hotel restaurants: Paul Corsentino at The National, and Chris Shea of David Burke Kitchen. Foodies will get to “dish” with the chefs about the meal at hand and get opinions on must-see attractions and must-try activities and eateries in the neighbourhood. 

Culinary aficionados will have mouths watering not only over the cuisine at the highly acclaimed restaurants, but at the chance to interact and chat with the restaurants’ executive chef throughout the course of the meal.  If they happen to dine at a time with Zakarian and Burke are in house they will get the added bonus of rubbing elbows with them as well.
The experience also includes a behind-the-burners tour of the kitchen (arranged during non-meal hours), and an autographed cookbook by Zakarian or Burke (depending on dining venue). 

This custom experience is priced per room, double occupancy, from USD$1150 at The Benjamin, USD$1300 at The James New York and includes:

·         Three-nights’ accommodations (additional nights are available)
·         Interactive dinner for two with the executive chef
·         Breakfast for two each morning in room or in the restaurant
·         Autographed cookbook
·         Kitchen tour
·         List of Iron Chef Zakarian or Chef Burke’s personal New York City hotspots.
